Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Summer/Fall 1972

If you want to listen to full shows, I'd recommend doing so in moderation!....with Pigpen out of the picture, the setlists are even more repetitious, and the short songs don't vary much. But at least you get Bird Songs added in the first sets. And He's Gone becomes much more jammed-out than it was in Europe '72.

From the summer, 7/18, 8/22 and 8/24 also shouldn't be missed (well, the whole Berkeley run is worth checking out).

From September, you can throw a dart and hit a winner. (The Lost Sailor's Pub has a thread reviewing every Sep '72 show, if you frequent those parts.)
Here's an old post on one random show:

I had a post on some Oct/Nov highlights:

To this, I'd add 11/13 as an essential listen. 10/18, 10/19, and 11/17 have must-hear second sets.

(And this was a post by someone else on some Nov '72 shows:
http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=197144 )

And of course you know my December '72 post... By late fall '72 the Dead's jams have a certain dark ragged intensity that's more threatening than mellow...
But really, the best way to find highlights is to go through everything with your own ears. Many of my favorite moments come as surprises in otherwise unremarkable shows.

Thanks for all the links LiA, I've bookmarked them and can refer to them as I continue this odyssey. I'm almost tempted to do the whole rest of the year instead of just the highlights I asked for just to watch the progression.

I'll see how this all pans out and I'll let you know.

PS. I became a member at LSP a while ago and posted something. It seems to me, after looking at a few threads today, that the thread can start with a topic then quickly devolve into a conversation between two or three people that gets off-track quickly. It seems more of a technical site than a "feeling" site. I have always been in the group of how the music made me feel as opposed to "oh no!, they've lost the B channel! This really sucks!". Just doesn't bother me that much.

I'm going to log in more often though and see what's up.

I remember you asked for just the highlights of E72, and then went & listened to the whole thing anyway!

But for me at least, going through '72 would be infinitely more rewarding than tackling all of, say, May '77.... (Though the Sugarees were better by then!)

Interesting, LSP didn't strike me as a "technical" site at all. Perhaps too devoted to "best-of" lists, and of course, very skewed towards latter Dead. True, some threads turn into silly arguments - goes to show how touchy deadheads are!

True about that Spring Tour and, with what I've listened to so far, I'll probably listen to all the shows I have from '72(which is most of them).

As for LSP, I'll dive in some more and give it a try.

that 11 -13 - 72 Bear source of DS > MD is essential GD music


LiA - not familiar w/ site LostSP , looked around a bit but , What is it ?


The last link in LiA's post , re: Nov. '72 , has a wonderful photo from somewhere between 3 - 25 - 72 and the end of E'72 ( can't imagine 6 -17 -72 was that cold , but covering the bases here ) It's of the Core 5 and the Godchaux's , the 4th image down . Never seen that one before , and it's a happy one .

I like that photo as well. There's not alot of group shots that include both Pig and the Godchaux.' First time I saw it anywhere was in Phil's book. I suspect the occasion is they're embarking for Europe after the March NYC run but it's little more than a guess.

Godchaux's for the possessive, as in 'Keith Godchaux's piano'
Godchauxes for the plural, as in 'the Godchauxes, Keith and Donna'

In Phil's book the photo is captioned "en route to Denmark", so it must be just before 4/14.

The other picture w/ Pig & Keith in Phil's book was, amusingly, used in the 11/15/71 Road Trips case....even though Pigpen wasn't with them on 11/15/71!
